“We’d all love to know…”

What are your favorite hobbies or what do you enjoy doing during your free time? 
Being a mom!!!! I know this isn't a "hobby" but I really enjoy spending most of my free time with my children Scott and Madilynn. We love hiking, dancing (*our dance parties are getting serious now that Santa brought a disco ball and Scott deejays on his ipod, ha!*), going on adventures to the zoo, children's museum, King's Island, playing games (we play one every night and are currently obsessed with Uno), and just spending time together. Children grow up too fast and I am just enjoying every minute with them!

I also love going to cardio boxing, cooking for family and friends, blogging, photography, traveling, and shopping at Target.

Your favorite vacation destination?
My favorite "couples" destination is Hawaii. Mike and I went went we were first married. It was gorgeous, relaxing, and romantic! 
My favorite family destination is Naples Beach or Disney World.

See what I mean about growing up fast - this picture makes me want to cry my eyes out. ;)

The best advice you’ve been given?
I have SOOOOOO much fun with my friends who love me for ME! 
(funny quirks and all!)

Most rewarding part of teaching?
Helping children fall in love with books, watching their growth in writing, and seeing all of their smiles and eagerness to learn. 

What are you known for?
Being happy. 
: ) : ) : )
 I love to laugh. 

2 random facts:
My husband and I met randomly online (not through a dating site!) and were married 8 months later. I was 18, he was 20!!! 
We just celebrated our 13th wedding anniversary. And our children put this together (and cooked!!) for us:
So sweet!!!!

I am obsessed with photo collages. :)

The Loves of Your Life:
Share a picture(s) of your LOVES.
